Lentil Flatbread Pizza

31 Dec

Almost everyday we find a ton of new recipes on Pinterest that we want to try. Of course it would probably take years to actually make all the recipes we find because there are that many good ones! The amount of time we spend on Pinterest is kinda sad. It always makes us wonder how we survived without something as great as Pinterest… But thank god we will never have to know! The time we spend can be justified though.. Look at how many great ideas we have found because of it!

This recipe was inspired by one we found on Pinterest a few weeks ago! It was super easy to make and so versatile we would definitely make it again!

Ingredients:
1/2 cup of soaked lentils (we soaked them in water for 6 hours)
2 tablespoons of either ground flax or chai seeds (we choose the flax)
2/3 cup of water

Directions:
1. Puree the soaked lentils, ground flax or chai seeds and water in a blender. Now is the time to add any spices or seasoning you wish to flavor the flatbread with. We added salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. (I think garlic and basil would be a good combination too!)
2. Next, spray a frying pan with cooking spray and allow the pan to heat up on medium heat.

3. Finally pour the lentil mix into the pan and spread it around in an even layer. Allow it to cook for 5-7 minutes on medium heat, then flip and cook 5-7 minutes on the other side.

The recipe we found suggested using the flatbread with hummus but we decided to use it for pizza!

We took the cooked flatbread and added sauce, vegetables, and cheese and baked it in the oven at 350 for 10-12 minutes! This recipe was super easy and could be used as the base in so many different recipes! This is one thing we will definitely be making again soon!

Note: We’re not sure who added this all to a blender, smelled it, and still decided to still cook it! The smell of blended lentils isn’t the greatest smell but we decided to cook it anyway and it tasted SO much better than it smelled we promise! 🙂

Served with a side of sugar snap peas this was the perfect dinner!
